Touching Article

I just read this article and it put a lump in my throat. It's so hard to raise a child even with 2 parents. To be a single father, AND go to school AND work...that, to me, is just unimaginable. Holy cow!

I know this kind of thing isn't uncommon nowadays. But something about this particular family is tugging at my heart. Maybe it's the fact that Mike Schieding has a son, almost the same age as Christian. Maybe it's because I've had a very hard day dealing with Christian and his tantrums and I don't even work OR go to school.

I'm so touched by this. I emailed the editor to see if I can somehow donate some money to him to help him out with his situation. If anyone else is compelled to do the same, please email me. We parents need to look out for eachother!
